I usually use like 1" elastic for all sizes. I buy mine from walmart. The length of the tulle just depends on how long you want the tutu. If you want it to be 10" long I would cut 21" lenth tulle. The extra 1" is for the tying unto the elastic.

I see now do you know what size around the elastic would be for 0-6 months 6-9 months etc?

I have only made them for like 2- 6 year olds. It fits both since it stretches. I'll be making one for a 4 month old in a few days when I do I'll tell you what I measure out. I'm not sure yet. I don't remember for my others either i'm not good at writing things down.

When I use elastic; I cut the elastic 4 or 5 inches shorter than I want the waist size. You can probably search and find normal waist sizes for kids and go from there, (my 2 year old is around 20" so I cut elastic for her at 15"). For length of tulle I cut the tulle to be 14" if I want a 6" length for babies (tying the knot takes about 2" for me), I cut 22" to do a 10" length.
